We had dinner and the food was cold and uneatable. The fries were soggy and cold. The wait staff was more interested in talking to each other than waiting on customers.

Love the seating, ambience and food. Comfortable and inviting. The only way to see a movie. At peak times, parking may be tight in the structure.

If you are looking for dinner and a movie, The Lot is a cool option. Huge restaurant and bar with large menu and upscale pricing. Movie theater with all the latest flicks and kids are welcome. Splurge and make a night of it!

we stopped in for a light bite and were not disappointed. We had a Cobb salad and tortilla soup. Both were excellent. We were then surprised by a very good 4 piece band.
